NHL Central Scouting’s Al Jensen
"John has great net coverage and size (6-foot-3, 200 pounds), and is very strong. He's sound technically, moves very well laterally and is controlled. He's calm, not busy."
U.S. Under-18 goalie coach Joe Exter
“He has size and presence in the net, and moves with power. The best part is he's not just a limited goaltender for being a big guy. He's multi-dimensional. He has power, athleticism, and he's got good flexibility. And those parts of his game allow him to have success at the high level. He also has a calm demeanor in the net.”
